英语谚语(Proverb)带翻译

次浏览

People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
自己住在玻璃屋,不要向别人扔石头。

本意是:住在玻璃屋里的人不可丢石头。也就是说,世间没有十全十美的人,每个人都有缺点,所以不要批评别人。

即所谓「自身有短,勿批他人」。(Nobody is perfect,so we should not criticize others.) 类似的,还有:

Don't judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes.(除非你充分了解人家的立场,不可轻易作出评估.)
(judge = criticize; have walked a mile in his shoes = have understood his situation well enough)

另一句是:

Judge not lest ye be judged.(来自圣经)(意思是:不要批评别人,免得将来也被别人批评.)(ye 是古字 = you;lest 是连接词,意思是唯恐或免得.)就是:

If you criticize others,you probably will be criticized ,too.

所以我们也可以说:

He told his children“Judge not lest ye be judged.”
